Disney Junior is a cable television channel in Latin America. It is the local variant of the American channel of the same name. It is broadcast in three feeds: North Zone, South Zone and Brazil. It is marketed to preschoolers. Disney Junior is operated by Disney & ESPN Media Networks Latin America and The Walt Disney Company Latin America, both of The Walt Disney Company. It was launched on June 1, 2008 as Playhouse Disney Channel. Formerly it only was a programming block in the mornings of Disney Channel Latin America, where it still is a programming block, as Disney Junior en/no Disney Channel. The programs are very similar to the Disney Junior channel and Disney Junior on Disney Channel block in the United States. However, the channel also airs non-original programming.

On December 23, 2010 The Walt Disney Company Latin America announced that the channel would be replaced by Disney Junior sometime in 2011,[1] and the relaunch happened on April 1, 2011, coinciding with the premiere of The Garden of Clarilu.


The channel started as a programming block in the mornings of Disney Channel Latin America airing original programming focused on preschoolers. An original production, produced by RGB Entertainment, named La Casa de Playhouse Disney (Playhouse Disney's House) aired on the block, with two hosts reading stories and playing games with kids, as well as introducing the series.

On June 1, 2008 Disney & ESPN Media Networks Latin America launched Playhouse Disney Channel as a 24-hour independent channel, initially only in Argentina and Mexico, eventually reaching more countries in Latin America. The new channel was hosted by Ooh and Aah, two monkey hosts. The programming block on Disney Channel Latin America is still aired in the mornings but with a reduced schedule.

The Playhouse Disney show with the two hosts was dropped both from the programming block and from the channel, being totally replaced with Ooh and Aah since June 1, 2008 (in Latin America Ooh and Aah were hosts only). This segment is renamed La casa de Playhouse Disney in Brazil A Casa do Playhouse Disney (Playhouse Disney's House).

On December 23, 2010, The Walt Disney Company Latin America announced that Playhouse Disney Channel would be replaced by Disney Junior sometime in 2011.[1] The channel keeps up with 24-hour of programming aimed to preschoolers and received new online services which will allow to see entire episodes, musical videos and other content in websites. The new Disney Junior also received mobile services.[1] When Playhouse Disney in Latin America transformed into Disney Junior, Ooh and Aah were taken off the air permanently.


Disney Junior Latin America is divided into three feeds for its different transmissions, each with different schedules and hosts.

  • Disney Junior North: broadcasting in Mexico, Central America, Caribbean, Colombia and Venezuela
  • Disney Junior South: broadcasting in Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, Chile, Bolivia, Ecuador and Peru
  • Disney Junior Brazil: broadcasting in Brazil in Brazilian Portuguese
